Both Nebraska-based artists, Linda Stephen and Iggy Sumnik are natives of Michigan. The exhibition features origami collages created by Stephen during her 2014 artist-in-residence with the National Parks Service at the Homestead National Monument of America in Beatrice, Nebraska. Her series “House and Home” honors the history of homesteading and celebrates the restored tall grass prairie at Homestead. Sumnik’s ceramic sculptures merge the natural world and cultural trends to create bright, interesting and contrasting scenarios. His work on display spans the past five years, including new and previously exhibited selections.
